These powerful rods are saltwater grade, but these models are useful in the fresh too where distance and or/heavy flies are the go……think heavy nymph rigs on the Tongariro River or when fishing lakes the extra length of the 10′ models becomes very handy to gain more distance. Featuring a remarkably low swing-weight and a more forgiving action, the Ion XL is versatile option – fish it on big water for Trout and Salmon, then head to the coast to target Kahawai and Kingies. All models feature salt corrosion-resistant componentry. The ION rods are the toughest / strongest rods we have ever produced and will take anything you can throw at them.
